Not really on topic but related:
I was playing around with a DragonFly installation on my 1GB USB stick a
couple of months ago and tried to figure out how I might do a successful
buildworld on it (kernel building worked but for a full buildworld there
was too little space left).
So I wrote a 'make compact' target which removes the object files as
soon as the binary is created in order to save space. It still didn't
work and I started thinking about a 'realcompact' target which removes
object files plus _source files_ as soon as they are no longer needed.
So in the end you would have only the binaries in obj and the Makefiles
But (luckily?) I got distracted by something else before I actually
tried implementing it. :)
